We also found a similar how-to from Astra from "A Journey To A Dream," who simply heated the end of a needle to poke holes through the container. Another great alternative is to use an empty laundry detergent bottle like the blogger from "Hawaii Gardening" did.

We absolutely love these repurposing ideas because they're super easy to make and totally as effective as store-bought accessories. This is great option for beginning gardeners who want to test out their skills before they advance to more expensive options. Or, can be used by a veteran who likes to upcycle.
